New York Red Bulls add Goalkeeper Carlos Coronel on loan from Red Bull Salzburg

The New York Red Bulls have added Brazilian goalkeeper Carlos Coronel on loan from Red Bull Salzburg pending his P-1 visa and ITC, the club announced today. Coronel will be on loan through the end of 2021, with a club option to purchase. The goalkeeper will occupy an international spot on the Red Bulls roster. 

“We’re pleased to have Carlos join us on loan for the season,” said Head of Sport Kevin Thelwell. “He is an outstanding goalkeeper, has experience with Gerhard’s style of play, and a familiarity with MLS. Carlos further solidifies our group of goalkeepers, and we look forward to getting him acclimated within our group.”

Coronel, 24, has spent the last two seasons with RB Salzburg. Most notably, the Brazilian goalkeeper earned three appearances, including two starts, during the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League Group Stage. He tallied a 1-1-1 record with eight saves and a 1.52 goals-against average.

"Carlos brings the experience of playing in the Champions League and has shown that in big games, he can bring stable performances and leadership on the field," said Head coach Gerhard Struber. "He strengthens our goalkeeper group and brings good energy to our team."

After two-and-a-half seasons at Red Bull Brasil Under-20s, Coronel began his professional career with FC Liefering, the second-division club affiliated with RB Salzburg, when he was 18-years-old. Over three years with Liefering, he accrued 20 clean sheets in 67 Erste Liga matches over 6,030 minutes played. Coronel wore the captain’s armband 16 times while with Liefering.

Coronel also spent time in MLS, being loaned for six months from RB Salzburg to the Philadelphia Union during the 2019 season. He made four appearances for Union, tallying two shutouts and a 4-0-0 mark. Coronel also saw time with Philadelphia Union II, making eight appearances in 720 minutes played.

The Unfortunate Vanzeir, Struber incident that has upset the fans, and league

photo by Matt Kremkau by Dan Feuerstein The Worst moment in New York Red Bulls/MetroStars history has finally come to a temporary conclusion. When I say a temporary conclusion, it means that Major League Soccer hasn't informed the masses of the punishment that would fit this horrible situation that graced the pitch at Red Bull Arena on Saturday night, April 8th against the San Jose Earthquakes. Here is the timeline of events that happened in that match as we try to piece together what all of us saw and how it all got started from beginning to end. In the 54th minute, another horrific challenge against the New York Red Bulls struck again as Judson delivered a two-footed mid-air challenge to the chest of Dylan Nealis and sadly all it got was a yellow card, Dylan's brother, and Captain Sean Nealis protested very loudly and earned his booking for his dissent of the referee's decision.

Yearwood joined New York in 2020 from Brentford in England. Along the way he has made 86 appearances for the club, including 55 starts. In 2021 and 2022 he made 18 starts, scoring three goals and three assists, his total output for the club in Major League Soccer.  In 2023 Yearwood found his position in the club to vary greatly.

After the departure of Cristian Casseres Jr. earlier in the year, it appeared as if Yearwood's minutes would increase. However Daniel Edelman stepped into the role, relegating Yearwood to more
